An ill-managed garbage collection area of the market where animal waste including dead poultry, feathers, skin, bones, blood and fat are left in the open.

According to experts, improper collection and disposal of untreated animal waste can harm human health and pollute groundwater. Photo: Mahbubur Rahman Khan
